Ulm, Germany






Pants and Vest with patterns from F.I.M.I.
My fourth and fifth pieces that I sewed.

I really love the patterns from F.I.M.I. They fit me very well. However, the translations from Dutch to German are awful and really hard to understand – specially for a beginner like me!

Ha. And it was my first checkered cloth. And I made mistakes, of course :-)
Had to cut the trousers two times – and then the cloth was not enough. Look, how I put the pieces together.
Hehe …. nobody noticed so far ;-)

One of my favorite pants. Am just now doing it again with simple brown cloth.





Thanx F.I.M.I.

    I LOVE this entire outfit. You did a great job, especially in figuring out how to “fix” the issue of not having enough fabric! I am interested in knowing which F.I.M.I. issue it was in, and how to get that issue for myself. I’m not certain that I could wear the trousers, but I could see myself in that vest for sure!

    F.I.M.I. = Fashion Is My Image. The patterns are included in the magazine. The magazine appears 2 times a year. I also love the new issue :-)

    I think the magazine is done by a company that sells fabric. They are also very famous for fabrics for kids clothes. They do also have two more magazines “Trendz” (patterns for teenagers) and “Bizzkids” (patterns for kids).

    I love the pants & vest. Is the magazine avilable in Canda or US? Are the patterns included as in the Burda Magazine?

    Well done again! Actually, I’ve got an issue of F.I.M.I. and I am Dutch, so I can tell you that the instructions are quite sketchy in Dutch as well. (I ended up never using it because the sizing was quite wrong for me)

    I’m so impressed and I love those pants. I tore out a page of last months American Vogue that had those (I think they were Gucci) in black. I might have to learn Dutch.

    Hahaha! I do that sometimes too, no worries, nobody notices unless you tell them! They really do fit you very very well, I really like the waist line style. The vest is very cool! What is F.I.M.I. ?
